The Era of Procurement Empowerment

In the past, procurement was labeled as the business enforcer. By pushing compliance and policy, business stakeholders were often told what and how to buy, rather than easily guiding them to what they really need.

Taking cue from customer-led technologies and the concept of Amazon-like search, the evolution of procurement as both a service and technology has changed its focus from enforcer to enabler by promoting the adoption of buying based on a customer-centric approach.
